With each new tablet released -- and there's a lot of them these days! -- the folks at iFixit break out the spudgers and get to work for all of us to enjoy. Now the company has published a chart comparing just how repairable they are to each other.
The debut of Microsoft's Surface with Windows 8 Pro this week continues to fuel the debate over what should be considered a "tablet" and what should be a "computer," with at least one research firm combining the two.
It must be tough to be a public figure in any line of work, with the media constantly waiting to pounce on every word you speak. Such is the case with Dell CEO Michael Dell, who once famously suggested that Apple had no hope of recovery and should simply close its doors and return money to the shareholders. Read on to find out why that statement is so ironic nearly 16 years later...
Did you hear the news? Never mind the fact that the iPad 2 is selling out all over the world -- a prominent Dell executive has predicted it’s doomed to fail. Meanwhile, an HP executive claims Apple has a “poor relationship” with its partners.
We’re used to seeing lists of the top earners, right? So imagine our surprise when CNNMoney offered up a list of the 15 top CEO overachievers -- you know, the guys who on the books make little in salary but make up for it with bulging stock options -- and Apple’s own Steve Jobs makes the top of the list.
With Microsoft having fired the first salvo in what's sure to be the latest round of the Mac versus PC war, it seems that Apple has had an unlikley ally come to the fore to reinforce them in battle: Glowing statitistics concerning the quality of their tech support. According to a new study from Vocalabs, when things go wrong in the Apple universe, Apple provides the best customer care experience out over some of the world's largest computer hardware manufacturers.
We wouldn't trade anything for our beloved Macs, but Dell knows not everyone feels that way. Most people just care about the final price. Unfortunately for them, their most recent Dell to Apple comparison has been outed for being just plain inaccurate. We know companies often omit a lot of the extras Macs come with when they make these comparisons, but we're glad the rest of the world, via Electronista, is catching on.
The iPad may have taken down non-products like HP’s Slate (heavily rumored to be cancelled) and Microsoft’s Courier (straight-up confirmed cancelled) without breaking a sweat. But there is no shortage of challengers lining up to battle Apple’s magical device for supremacy. Some don’t actually exist yet, and of course, none of them run Apple’s superior touchscreen iOS. Some, we’re sorry to say, even run Windows, so don’t count on Mac integration. Still, we present this collection of iPad competitors to keep you informed about what’s out there and to help you make conversation at your next nerd party. Yup, we’re here for you like that.
